?  I'm having trouble figuring out what it would mean if I answered "no".

I don't think a 'silent' option is required.

Grub defaults to passing 'quiet' to the kernel, and no systemd options.  
Installing the systemd package does not change the options passed to the 
kernel, and AFAIK cannot for Policy reasons.

When the 'quiet' option is passed to the kernel, systemd picks this up and 
sets systemd.show_status=false and systemd.sysv_console=false.  [The default 
for both of these is 'true' if the 'quiet' option is not present.]  The result 
is that no daemon startup messages are sent to the console during bootup when 
the 'quiet' option is used, unless these settings are chagned via passing the 
additional kernel boot options described in the previous email above *after* 
the 'quiet' option.
